Since I very rarely take the car to redline I asked if they could not proceed with the ECU reprogram as I already had aftermarket programming and so they complied with my request and only carried out the normal warranty oil and def service/ inspection.
Good to know this isn't a big deal then if that's the case. Although my car was rock solid and ran like a champ before all this emissions BS and related programming.
